In outport Newfoundland, sheds are small, typically wooden structures used to store fishing gear and tools, while providing a space to work. Sheds became a central, informal gathering place where people assembled to share stories, play music, and enjoy each other’s company. The Shed Series, by Canadian designer Katrina Tompkins, is inspired by traditional three-legged stools. These stools were used as task chairs, with three legs that stabilized on the uneven ground found in sheds, stages, or even outdoors. The Shed Series is unornamented, built by hand, and ready to work.
